ESPN sinks to a new low by making it awkward for Brandon Weeden

Thanks to Niners Nation for bringing this to my attention.

Weeden is a 28-year old NFL draft quarterback prospect and his age is a concern. But is it necessary to do this to him? It’s not like he’s hold and unable to throw a ball. He spent the early part of this 20s playing baseball before enrolling at Oklahoma State in 2007.

This is the kind of stuff that I expect better from ESPN but at the same time, I am not surprised. ESPN has been criticized for their around the clock watch of Brett Favre and Tim Tebow in recent years and has caused unintentional stirs. Age is an important part of Weeden’s profile — but not like this.

Of course, this is ESPN. And I guess my response to this should be another famous ESPN saying: “C’mon man!”
